Re: need help with brake booster
I checked the pedal rod and it is adjusted all the way back. So, the pedal is not pushing the pin out. I also put the old pin and the new pin side by side and they are within millimeters of being the same length. The problem lies inside the booster, where the pin does not sit as far back as it did on the old booster. This indicates to me, that they didn't measure very carefully when they started making these new boosters.
I'm not wild about the washer-idea, as that will leave a noticeable gap between the master cylinder and the booster. I guess I will try and grind down the new pin. No one should have to be doing that, imo. Where is the Quality Control in these expensive parts (a rhetorical question) ???
